STREAMS Incident Management System (SIMS) is used by traffic management centres to manage road networks through detection, verification, logging and response to unplanned incidents such as accidents, planned events such as roadwork, and equipment faults. To read more about the STREAMS Incident Management System, please download our STREAMS features brochure.

SIMS reduces the impact of incidents and faults by providing:

Verification and logging of incident details Location-based logging
Device-based fault identification Cross-regional and cross-organisational handover of incidents and events

Flexibility in multiple operator access to managing incidents and events

Automatic customisation of generic response plans to create tailored response plans for each incident

Reports that facilitate the review of trends and performance, leading to improved response.
